Teacher Appreciation with a Jolly Rancher

Today I received one of the coolest Teacher Appreciation gifts from one of my students.  I was so intrigued with it that I wanted to share and find the steps on how to create this fascinating masterpiece.



I asked Claire how they made them, and this is how she described it: They placed a  Dum Dum sucker on a baking sheet, placed Jolly Ranchers around the sucker, and then melted it in the oven.

For the finishing touch they placed it in a plastic sandwich bag and tied a ribbon around it.  So cute!


I found this post through Pinterest that gives additional details on how to create these cute suckers.

I’m sure there are many other designs that can be made.  I know my little girl would love to do this, and I’m sure we will have to try it out.  Have you made these before and/or have ideas for additional designs?  I would love to hear about them in the comments below!
